Queensland government plans to abolish abuse loopholes with the passing of a new amendment bill

Survivors of psychological and serious physical abuse in Queensland institutions will be able to sue for damages under new amendments to a bill currently before the Queensland State Parliament. The Civil Liability (Institutional Child Abuse) Amendment Bill 2018, once passed, will provide fair access and outcomes to survivors of child sexual abuse who wish to pursue a claim for civil damages for personal injury arising from the abuse.
